THE LABOR DAILY HOW SHALL IT BE OWNED? [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 17 August 1910

THE LABOR DAILY MOW SHALL IT BE OWNED?. J Some members have been inquiring i whether it., is intended that the proposed Labor Daily shall be based upon shares issued to individuals or whether it shall be Union-owned and controlled. The answer is that it will be Union wtr.iicu aiiu - To give the other Unions a chance to I come in it is imperative that the schema s shall be based upon company lines. Com-. S pany. law requires that, a certain number | of persons shall join ' together to enable . a company to be formed in the first in- k stance. To comply with this law it ha^*'* ! : been decided that a certain number ot t approved persons may come in as founda tion members.

THE QUESTION OF SECTIONAL UNIONISM. UNIONS DEBARRED FROM AFFILIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 18 August 1910

THE QUESTION OF SECTIONAL UNIONISM. UNIONS DEBARRED FROM AFFILIATION. Mr. E. Farrar presided over' the usual Weekly meeting of the N.S:W._ Labor Council on Thursday evening, when prac tically the only business transacted was the application of three hewly-f ormed unions for affiliation. They were from the Cycle and Motor, and 'Electro-plating Trade's. Employees' Union, the Blacksmiths' Society, and the Builders' Laborers' Union, and as, according to a subsection of Rule 5, the members of the applying unions affiliated, the executive recommended that the applications be refused. Mr. W. L. Duncan, in moving the Ex ecutive's report be adopted,- said that the., rule seemed to be a rather unfair one, and shut out many unions. At the present time many unions that desired to affili ate were debarred from doing so simply because their members were eligible to join other unions. It; would be to the- in terest of the Council as well as the unions to have the difficulty overcome. Mr. McDermott...

QUEENSLAND TRADES UNIONS. GOOD WORK AT THE FIRST STATE CONGRESS. Closer Unity Recommended. Immigration Under False Pretences. Last week the first State Congress of Queensland Trade and Labor Unions was dpened at the Brisbane Trades Hall. Mr. E. J. Hanson, president of the Trades and Labor Council, presided, and the attendance was most representative. Mr. D. Bowman, M.L. A. (leader of the State Labor Party) in returning thanks for his welcome to the proceedings, said he hoped to see the day when, instead of a Trades and Labor CoUncil, they would have District Councils of Federated Labor. No individual union could command any real power; only by amalgamation of forces — the unionism of unions — could anything great be achieved. The Congress affirmed the principle. of industrial unions taking political action, and accepted the Labor platform. It was agreed — 'That as industrial unions, under the Taff Vale decision, are at the mercy of any unscrupulous em ployer, this Congress urges the...
